I bought this piece at an auction last night. It was described as a Genuine Tom and Jerry animation cel. I gambled a bit on this one, because I didn't do any research on this prior to the auction, and I honestly have never heard of an animation cel prior to this auction! This had a $125 reserve on it, and the owner of this item was sitting beside me, so I was able to pick her brain for a little bit of info. She said that she bought it a few years ago in an art gallery in Boca Raton for around $500. She said that it is the real thing, and I can say that every item she had up in this auction was high-dollar, quality stuff, and as far as I could tell, it was all legitimate stuff. I jumped online really fast right before it went up for bidding, and these things were all across the board-genuine Tom & Jerry animation cels were selling for as much as $9,800! The owner also said that she has the paperwork for this somewhere in her house, and that she would try to dig it up for me. I would appreciate any information on this item that you can offer, without me having the paperwork (in case she cannot locate it). An approximate value, age! Thanks! PS - I bought one more item last night that the same lady owned, and I am putting that in here for your expertise on as well. It is a huge, signed, numbered Alice Cooper framed Lithograph.
